Fun fact: sometime long, long ago, Addi’s Bottle Brush Company dyed their toilet bowl brushes and turned them into little Christmas trees and wreaths. These whimsical little trees have been around forever and have regained popularity recently. I’m sharing some really creative ways to decorate with these little trees, simple crafts, different ways to dye them as well as a genius storage idea.
If you’re a vintage lover, the most valuable ones will be studded with little mercury glass beads like this cute pink tree. Some are even music boxes that spin. I’ve never seen anything like this differently shaped bottle brush tree. Some even come with little Christmas characters like this tree with an elf.
